So... we're having a great weekend at Sarah's house and I have lots to talk about! First let's start with yesterday at the mall.
Just a warning.... we're going to talk about bra's right now so if you don't want to know about that then please skip the next few paragraphs!
So, as I may have mentioned here (or not) I desperately needed a new sports bra (and possibly some normal bras as well) so when I saw that Victoria's Secret was having a great sale on sports bras I decided to check it out. First thing they did was offer to measure me so I figured why not.
Well... wow. So, when I was at my highest weight I was a 44 Double D. When I walked into VS's yesterday I was wearing a 42 Double D. They measured me as a 38 Triple D.... :o I didn't even know triple D was a size! And 38!! I can't remember the last time I was a 38! No wonder my bras are so unsupportive!
Anyway, I tried on the correct regular bra first and it looked so good and so much better than what I'm currently wearing (in fact the lady told me nicely that it was time to retire that bra... or burn it lol). Then I tried on some sports bras and wow... I have never in my life worn a more comfortable sports bra!! I didn't want to take it off!
So I got one sports bra, a great pair of sports pants for a huge discount and I seriously need to go bra shopping now because all of my bras are the wrong size!!
So, on to other topics... mainly food, protein and carbs. I've been working on clean eating since Monday and I'm not thrilled with it. Not due to the food or anything, in fact I'm loving the fruits and veggies that I'm eating, but I'm not liking the higher amounts of carbs.
As I posted during the last week I've really felt like crap all week. Partly it was from detoxing from junk, partly from weather but now, after considering it for a while and talking it out, I think it was partly from the way, way higher amount of carbs so I'm changing the plan a little again.
I still want to eat clean (at least 80% of the time) but I want to go back to the low carb (under 50 grams in possible). That means cutting back on the oatmeal which is fine. I'm actually going to call my doctor about seeing a nutritionist to help me get all this figured out (at my trainer's suggestion). I really do want to get rid of junk and crap food but I don't feel well when my carb counts are way higher. I spent the whole week exhausted, headachy and just not like me but yesterday was a low carb day and it just felt right!
Anyway, I'm going to keep figuring things out, experimenting, researching, planning and cooking but right now my focus will be low carb clean eating, which, having done a bunch of research online earlier, is definitely possible!
My current plan for food and cooking is three days. Make a shopping list and menu plan for three days, buy, cook and eat and then plan the next three days because a week sounds like too much right now. And I am definitely going to keep adding in veggies. Fruit is more of a dessert for me right now but veggies are perfect for filling in the gaps around the protein!
So anyway, that's it for now. I'll need to make some plans for Monday when we get home which is when I'll be back to my regular workouts but I did do a slow 40 minute walk today (didn't track it though :() and tomorrow we're doing Candlelight Yoga!
Hope you're all having a great weekend too!
